Overview of the global active protection system (APS) market

Research analysis on the global active protection system (APS) market identifies that the fast-paced development of anti-tank missiles will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the market's growth. The rising advancements and the placement of new-generation anti-tank missiles have induced the need for more improved APS for ground vehicles. To sustain such missiles and guard the crew and their armored vehicles from damages, manufacturers of combat vehicles are developing or obtaining and installing new APS. For instance, General Dynamics is looking at bringing out the Trophy system and its better versions on its new and existing combat vehicles. Such improvements will drive the demand for APS, subsequently driving market growth. Technavio's market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of more than 6% by 2021.

The implementation of RPG shield initiatives will be one of the key trends that will contribute to the growth of this market in the forthcoming years. To overcome encounters such as the heavy weight of countermeasures and the limited zone of engagement, APS vendors are constantly focusing on developing innovative and advanced systems. One of the popular vendors, Control Products has already developing a patented RPG Shield technology. This technology is lightweight and consists of a nonstop-rotating drum countermeasure targeting and launching system that offers faster response than the traditional gun and gimbal turret system while shooting incoming RPGs.
